Out of the abundance of the heart, a man speaks…
I’ve heard this taught as an admonition to carefully guard your heart against evil…
But today, I want to say to everyone who has an ear to hear…
That I see this as a good thing, for all who are followers of Christ…
If you have asked Jesus to come into your life and be your Lord and Savior… if you have given your life to Jesus, then You belong to Him, and you can safely assume that Jesus IS inside you… you have the goodness of God inside you… and you know, His goodness overcomes evil, don’t you? (big smile) –
And btw, if you haven’t yet made the decision to believe in Him and trust Him to heal you and give you guidance and protection in your life, it’s not too late, you can turn to Him anytime, all the time, and He’ll ALWAYS be there for you, because it’s who He is and it has nothing to do with you being good enough… He knows we’re not good enough and never can be, which is why He came for us in the first place… His love is that good, you see!
So for everyone who is a believer in Jesus, you are in Him and you are one with the Father, just as Jesus is…
And you have access to all the same things Jesus has access to, including the ability to love unconditionally and bring His amazing healing virtue to those who are hurting…
So those of you who are filled with the goodness of God, SPEAK! Shine your light in the dark places and be a beacon of hope to the lost and broken…
Believe first of all that there is goodness in you… believe the truth that over the years, God has invested a lot of Himself IN you, that you carry the treasures of heaven in your heart… treasures, nuggets of wisdom learned from the life lessons that God has shown you, that are just waiting to spill over into the lives of others who are hungry for what God has put inside you – REALLY!
Psalm 23 says the Lord has set a table for us “in the midst of our enemies” — He anoints our heads with oil, and our cup overflows” – REALLY! Our cup is not half full and it’s not half empty – it’s overflowing with the goodness of God and all He stands for…
Trust the Jesus in you… keep your arms wide open – your heart wide open to Him, trusting that because you are in Christ, you have everything you will ever need…
And become His expression of love and His saving grace to all those around you…
Believe it – and go forth and change your world… in the mighty name of Yeshua the Christ.
Luke 6:45 (NKJV)
A good man, out of the good treasure of his heart, brings forth good; and an evil man, out of the evil treasure of his heart, brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
Let Jesus truly BE the abundance of your heart so you will always speak His goodness in overcoming evil, without exception, without fail.
And never stop believing, knowing that God is now and always will be on the throne that is above every other throne, and He will ALWAYS be greater in power than all the hordes of hell combined, and way wiser than all the “wisdom” of man…
And He will ALWAYS have your best interests at heart, so you can always trust Him absolutely in every area of your life.
February 19, 2017
The Lord’s been speaking to me for years about how important it is for those of us who trust in Jesus to know who we are In Him, so a lot of what I pray, write, sing about or share, is about building people up in Christ.
But on top of that, something that I believe is almost as important, and certainly critical for the season we’re in, is encouraging folks to be the governing body of Christ on the earth (resisting every evil thing the devil’s trying to do to destroy us and the planet we live on J, and building stronger communities… things I’ve been developing as the Lord leads in a book I’m writing called “Call to Arms.”
I’ve also prayerfully written several letters to President Trump that I have shared with several people, as “focal points” for prayer, as they address some issues that I believe are critical, and involve not just our nation, but other nations, as well. I have yet to receive any indication that he has indeed read them, much less a response to what I consider to be grievous concerns that affect all of us… I plan on overnighting them to him, as well, in a “personal and confidential” overnight envelope to a mailing address I hope to confirm from his office. I’m pretty sure the address I already have is legitimate, as none of my missives have been returned by the post office, but I thought I’d at least call to confirm that I have the right one. I will post updates if I hear anything.
Beyond that, I HAVE to put my trust in God, that even if our new President is unable or unwilling (for any reason) to deal with the issues concerning us, that God Himself will intervene and raise up Godly men and women in every level of government, and give all who are trusting in Jesus, a voice that is LOUDER than all the others, and that He would silence the voice of EVERYONE who opposes Him.
Doesn’t mean I’m giving up, however (smile) – in fact, just the opposite. I’m aware now more than ever of the importance of all who believe in Christ to stand up and act like the overcomers that He created us to be, and we have to realize that whenever we need someone to do their job and they’re not going it (even if that someone is our government), we have to do it for them (smile).
It is our privilege to do so, but this is so foreign for most of us to wrap out head around, because we’ve been so “good” at being dumb sheep, sitting back and expecting our government to take good care of us. And I wanna say, how has that been working for us? Not so much!
And this is so contrary to what the Lord is expecting of us – no wonder we’re in such a mess!
I’ve also written several articles under the heading “Life Lessons from God” which may evolve into another book, that will be more of a devotional, things to meditate on that God has revealed to me over the years.
This morning as I was waking and meditating on the Lord and some things He was showing me in a dream I had, I was turned again to praying for our nation and for those of us who are called to make a difference in the world (smile), and the Lord had me write the following.
I was thinking of the importance of buying things locally, whenever possible, so we can build stronger communities, in building up local businesses, farmers and ranchers who grow organic food, and others.
And I was thinking we could make a big difference if we made a concerted effort to avoid buying anything from big corporations, especially anything from other countries (especially China), and any business that is using slave labor to mass produce their goods, and instead, buy things from independent distributors, as much as possible, but especially local producers, whenever we can.
Also, pray and ask God for creative ideas about how to make money. What can you create to sell online, at street fairs, etc., and then find a way to do it (smile).
Write books and sell them… Doug Addison wrote a very helpful book about writing books, simple ways to get motivated, and includes helpful information about how to publish them. Amazon has even provided a way to help walk you through the process of self-publishing that looks efficient and affordable.
I also think it’s important to look up organizations that are working with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to uncover, apprehend and prosecute people involved in human trafficking, so we can co-labor with them in finding and recovering victims of this heinous crime, and help them begin their healing.
Here are a couple of websites I found that have information about some of these organizations. I haven’t checked them out, yet, but wanted to include them here with the admonition to please do so prayerfully, because sometimes people with nefarious motives infiltrate even the most well-intentioned.
The organization I know the most about is one that was endorsed by Graham Cooke at a conference I attended in Portland… here is a video from their website which I encourage everyone to watch:
Here is a list of others I have located, but again, I have no personal opinion about any of them yet. As I learn more, I will post online:
Trafficking Policy and Advocacy: Polaris Project
One of the most influential groups working on the issue in the United States, the Polaris Project takes a comprehensive approach to ending modern-day slavery. The organization advocates for stronger federal and state laws, operates the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline , provides services and support for trafficking victims, and works with survivors to develop long-term strategies to ending human trafficking.
Second-Generation Trafficking: Prajwala
In India, children who grow up in brothels with their parents often meet the same fate. In order to counteract this dangerous legacy, social activist Dr. Sunitha Krishnan co-founded Prajwala (which means “eternal flame”). Based in Hyderbad, India, the organization rescues women from brothels and then provides them with education, mental health care, and job programs. (Check out Dr. Krishnan’s powerful talk at the 2009 TedIndia Conference .)
Statelessness and Child Trafficking: COSA
Most Hill tribes in Thailand are “stateless,” or not governed by the laws of the country—which makes their women and girls particularly vulnerable to trafficking. After recognizing this, photojournalist Mickey Choothesa and social worker Anna Choothesa created the Children’s Organization of Southeast Asia to provide education, intervention, and support in Hill tribe communities. COSA works directly within trafficking communities to provide trafficked girls with healthcare, social services, and housing in the Baan Yuu Suk Shelter —as well as to bring awareness and education to the traffickers themselves.
Trafficking of Men and Young Boys: Urban Light
A number of organizations help girls in the sex industry, but very few work to aid young men. After a service trip during which she observed the industry in Thailand firsthand, Alezandra Russel realized that boys are often excluded from the human trafficking conversation. So she created Urban Light, an organization that works to help young men break free from child prostitution and sexual exploitation. By providing food, shelter, healthcare, and support services, the group helps restore and rebuild the lives of male victims.
International Sporting Events: Student World Assembly’s Red Card Project
When a large sporting event, such as the World Cup, takes place, fears often arise that trafficking will increase to meet demand from the influx of tourists. Student World Assembly’s Red Card Project mobilizes students from around the world to stage powerful and striking condemnations of human trafficking at these events, bringing large-scale and needed public awareness to the practice.
Child Labor: GoodWeave
The handmade rug industry has one of the highest child labor rates in the world. When GoodWeave began its work in 1994, there were nearly one million children—many kidnapped or trafficked—working on the looms in South Asia, often for up to 18 hours a day. Through its efforts, the organization has not only helped bring child labor in the rug industry down 75%, it has built affiliations with retail outlets all over the U.S. to ensure that all carpets sold are free from child labor.
Agape International Missions: This group seeks to stop human trafficking in Cambodia. The California based group started as a church planting group, but since has been committed since 2005 to ending child sexual slavery.
COATNET: This organization, COATNET, which stands for Christian Organizations Against Trafficking in Human Beings, links Christian groups, including the Catholic Church, to internationally fight the problem.
Covenant House: This group focuses on homeless children in the United States, who are a vulnerable group for human trafficking. This group estimates that 1 in 3 homeless kids will be approached by a human trafficker within 48 hours of being on the streets. The ministry provides housing and necessities, it also advocates for laws to protect children and put an end to human trafficking.
Faith Alliance Against Slavery and Trafficking: FAAST is a joint effort of several Christian organizations against human trafficking. It is an arm of the group World Relief, which also seeks to help refugees of all kinds. The group provides training and research as well as promoting collaboration between member organizations on the issue.
Compassion 2 One: This Seattle-based organization works to save children from sex trafficking. The group promotes education and awareness of child abduction and trafficking that happens throughout the world. The group also promotes a “Protect-her” movement that encourages men to take a pledge not to participate in activities that support the sex trade including pornography and prostitution.
Joyce Meyer Ministries: The Hand of Hope ministry supported my Joyce Meyer Ministries works in Thailand, Ethiopia, Eastern Europe, Cambodia and the United States. The ministry focuses on offering housing as a way out of the sex trade for women who have been coerced into trafficking and prostitution as a way out of poverty.
CBN Ministries: CBN Ministries estimates 27 million world-wide victims of human trafficking. The group says the average age of these victims is just 12 years old. CBN works with partner organizations to ease poverty and meet the needs of vulnerable women and children around the world.
The National Human Trafficking Resource Center offers a help hotline for anyone who either suspects human trafficking or victims looking for help. The phone number is 1-888-373-7888
Some additional suggestions I found somewhat helpful on a website called “the muse” follows.
I just want to include here the strong admonition that as much as we all want to help, we all need to keep in mind the powers behind this heinous crime are evil and very vindictive and very driven to protect their nefarious crimes at all cost (including attacking whistleblowers and those who are exposing and investigating their evil), so we ALL need to be prayerful and use extreme caution in deciding any course of action.
1. Start a Club or Community Group
It’s hard to remain quiet knowing that human trafficking is going on, so speak up—each voice that spreads the word about the problem is important. Share the story with your friends, colleagues, and fellow concerned citizens, and work together as a group to promote awareness and take action. The students and professors of Mercer University did exactly that when they launched S.T.O.P., an organization that works to end sex trafficking through awareness, action, and dialogue. Recently, S.T.O.P. coordinated the Call to End 21st Century Slavery conference, which hosted over 900 students and citizens from across the country. To get started on your own group, host a meeting to spark interest, then decide on your group’s specific goals. Will you promote awareness, take action, or both? Once you’ve decided, you can plan events and outreach to further spread your message. Find ideas below for what your group can do.
2. Lobby Local Policymakers
In Macon, Georgia, massage parlors often operated without license—and often hosted the commercial sex trade. So S.T.O.P lobbied Macon’s mayor, city council, secretary of state, and state senator to pass SB 364, making it a law for all massage parlors to operate under legitimate licensing. You are a powerful voice in your community and your state. So if you want to see something done about human trafficking in your area, reach out to your local politicians. Schedule a meeting with them to emphasize why trafficking should be on their priority list and suggest ways they can help end this problem in your community—as well as across the nation and around the world.
3. Hold an Event to Raise Awareness
College students Justine D’Souza and Justine Yu realized the need for students to address trafficking in a social environment, so, as officers of the Rutgers University Campus Coalition Against Trafficking , they launched the annual Stop the Traffick Jam concert, which brings bands and speakers together to promote awareness and raise money for an international anti-trafficking organization. The group also hosts an annual coffee house to talk to other students about trafficking. And you can do the same! Host an event—as simple as a potluck or as elaborate as a formal conference—to spread the word about trafficking and help others gain a better understanding of what’s really going on.
4. Launch a Research Project
Understanding trafficking isn’t about barging into brothels or passing judgment. It takes research, cultural understanding, and even personal experience to get a good grasp on the issues. Recent college grads Alexandra Wolf and Mona Sulieman wanted to do just that, so the two are journeying across the U.S. to learn more about the issue and dispel the myth that it’s only an issue of the developing world. (You can follow their experience looking into the domestic challenge and response to trafficking on their blog, Traffic in Our Streets .) But you don’t have to travel far to do something similar. If you have a paper, thesis, or presentation coming up, consider investigating human trafficking in relation to your sector or field of interest. No matter what you do, there’s likely a way that you can contribute your expertise to the dialogue on trafficking.
5. Snag a Job at an Anti-Trafficking Organization
In a professional setting, fighting human trafficking can be intense, frustrating, and emotional, but it’s also extremely rewarding, and if you’re really passionate about the movement, it’s a great way to make a big impact. After working as a crisis counselor and advocate for victims of sexual assault, Laura Phillip wanted to use her experience on an international stage, so she moved to Thailand to become the director of COSA . Now, she manages the daily activities of the young women at Ban Yuu Suuk shelter, a haven for at-risk and formerly trafficked girls, coordinates volunteers, and develops programs in trafficked communities.
If you’re interested in working for an anti-trafficking organization, start by learning as much as you can about the subject. Expand your network on social media, and follow the different organizations that interest you online. Then, volunteer in a variety of roles to gain experience and get a sense for the specific positions you’d like and goals you want to achieve.
6. Pursue a Fellowship
If working in the anti-trafficking field interests you, but you aren’t ready to commit to anything long-term, apply for a short fellowship instead. There are many programs—anywhere from a few months to a year or longer—that will give you firsthand exposure in the fight to end human trafficking. The Not For Sale Campaign and Polaris Project both offer fellowships that allow you to play an integral role in their work.
7. Avoid Products and Companies that Facilitate Human Trafficking
According to research by the Polaris Project , human trafficking often operates alongside legitimate businesses. From chocolate companies to electronics producers, a number of corporations use human trafficking and forced labor as a means to making the most profit on their product. You can find out which companies still use slave labor in the Department of Labor’s List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor . Do your research to make sure your investments are socially responsible and benefit companies that don’t take advantage of modern day slaves.
Whether you work within an anti-trafficking organization, discuss the issue with friends, or just rethink the purchases you make daily, the biggest aid in the fight against human trafficking is you—and your power as an individual agent of change. (End of article.)
Every one of us was created in God’s image, and God said when He did so, “it is good.” (smile) And we ALL have God-given intelligence, talents and skillsets, meant to prosper, not harm us.
Yet many of us have been so beat down by the difficulties of life that we no longer believe we have any real value or usefulness to others.
NOT SO! This is SUCH a lie from the pit of hell! You are easily, effortlessly, the most valuable of ALL God’s creation and He LOVES you FAR more than you can ever imagine.
And that will never change! In fact, God’s love for you NEVER stops and never stops increasing, right along with the eternal increase of His government and His peace (Isaiah 9:7).
We’ve been handed down so many lies over the years that it’s hard to know what’s true and what’s not.
But let me tell you, that’s why God sent Jesus, who now lives in the heart of everyone who believes in Him. And He is our comfort, our wise counsel, the One who leads and guides us into all truth.
God’s truth is a two-edged sword that rightly divides the truth from a lie, with one side extending great mercy to ALL who trust in Him, and the other side delivering perfect, heavenly justice on ALL who oppose Him.
Does He judge us, as well, yes, but not in the way that some people think. He points out what we’re doing wrong in the same way that a loving mother or father does when they’re showing their young child how to walk; i.e., never in a condemning way, but always with encouragement, because He KNOWS we can do it!
Yes, things in the world are bad right now… much worse than many of us thought…
But make no mistake about it, our God in heaven LOVES us. He is GOOD and He is constantly at work on our behalf.
And He is urging me to ask you right now:
Will you trust Me? Can you TRUST Me? Can you trust Me to actually have your best interests at heart and to MOVE on your behalf in destroying the evil that surrounds you?
Do not be deceived into thinking otherwise; I am aware of your circumstances, and I AM still on the throne!
And I AM taking matters into my own hands… the same hands that were pierced for your transgressions and disease.
The same hands that are NOW fighting on your behalf.
So be STRONG in Me, My beloved! Trust Me in all circumstances that are beyond your understanding and control. My arm is never too short and NOTHING escapes My notice. Ever.
Trust Me as I lead and guide you through this difficult transition. Trust that it IS transitional and will not last forever. Transitional in that I am using this most difficult time of trial and testing for your growing, as you continue to keep your mind stayed on Me.
I have adopted you into my heavenly kingdom and NO ONE can snatch you out of My hands.
My ways are eternal.
My ways are healing.
My ways do NOT come with baggage or strings attached.
My ways do NOT benefit some while devastating everyone and everything else.
And together we WILL stop the genocide of the human race… the obliteration of planet earth by forces that seem beyond your control.
Know this. Nothing is beyond my control. After all, I created this mess, didn’t I? (tongue in cheek), and when I created it, I declared that it was good.
For a long time, the devil has been very busy trying to destroy the good in my creation, and he is leaving quite a massive wake of destruction in his path.
But his days are numbered and he knows it. His evil is being exposed and this has caused great panic and chaos in the enemy’s camp.
He is very afraid and very confused (as the confusion and destruction he planned for you is being turned back on him), frantically running around trying to patch the walls of deception that have been holding back the truth which is now being released in the earth.
Great, overwhelming tsunamis of righteousness are breaking down the great walls of deception that have covered up the depth and depravity of the evil behind the shadow government, and the demonic forces at work behind them.
The walls of deception that have kept you back from knowing how powerful you are in Me.
The walls of deception that have kept you divided one from another.
The same walls that have kept you uninformed as to the things going on under the surface, have kept you from knowing the many ways the devil’s been working to steadily destroy you over time… this has affected your physical wellbeing, your mental health, your emotional and psychological stability and wellbeing. He has also been working steadily over time to destroy the very world I created for your enjoyment, wealth and wellbeing.
But know this! I am raising such a tsunami of righteousness against him, such that this world has never known.
He WILL fall, and he will fall soon.
I have heard the cries of My people. My heart aches for you.
I have also heard the moaning and groaning of ALL My creation (Rom 8:19) as it awaits the revealing of My mature sons and daughters who are even now awakening and rising up to their full stature in Me. Kings and priests to rule and reign with me on earth “as it is in heaven.”
Sons and daughters who I am raising up to their full potential that I created in them, with a greater understanding of who they are in Me.
As warriors… soldiers who’ve been tried by fire, vessels of honor who carry My name, My glory and power with them wherever they go,
Seasoned worshippers who will NOT back down.
Together, we will overcome ALL evil; every obstacle that comes your way. As long as you keep your mind stayed on Me, I will keep you in perfect peace that passes all understanding. (Is 26:3)
As long as you continue to commit your way to Me, I will make your path straight. (Prov. 3:6)
Remember ALWAYS that you are seated with Christ in heavenly places (Ephes. 2:6), and He is seated “far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way.”. (Ephes 1:21-23)
[I like to sum this up by saying we are seated with Christ in heavenly places, far above the powers of darkness, doctrines of demons and wisdom of man, with our mind stayed on Him so He can keep us in His perfect peace in spite of the turmoil all around us, so we can see with clarity what’s going on, without being caught up in it, and we can respond according to what He’s showing us.]
God went on to say:
I created you all to be overcomers in My Son Jesus, to overwhelmingly conquer all the schemes of the devil.
So get your head out of the sand and come out of your cave, oh mighty men and women of valor…
I need you to come alive. Shake off your graveclothes.
Arise and shine! Be My beacon of hope to those around you.
Be My messenger of life-changing, all-powerful, unconditional love, healing, restoration and redemption to ALL who are broken and lost.
Pray for everyone who trusts in Me… for every seeker of truth.
Many are seeking, but have not yet found… they are seeking truth, peace, love, hope, justice, healing, grace.
All who know Me, know these things.
And all who seek these things, will find them only in Me.
Because I am all these things and more.
I am in all things and all creation constantly speaks of My glory.
Listen and you will hear.
Keep your eyes open, stay on high alert. Pay attention and pray ALL the time. Then when you see something unusual, ask Me what I want to show you and what you should do about it.
And you will see and understand great things as I lead you into all truth.
The truth that will set you and others around you, free from the bondage of lies and deception, from the reign of terror that the devil’s been waging.
Know this – you are overcomers because I say you are.
Your fears and failures do NOT define who you are, so you have to let them go, along with all shame and feelings of condemnation and worthlessness.
And no one but Me gets to say whether you live or die. Trust Me on this. I WILL provide everything you have need of on this earth, including divine health, until the moment I take you home to be with Me in paradise, forever! Where there will be no more suffering and pain.
If you will but TRUST in Me.
Make no mistake about it, I AM still on the throne and I will ALWAYS have your best interests at heart. I never sleep or slumber and I am always working on your behalf!
Join Me in this good fight. This war of waging My goodness over evil. Keep in mind that My goodness DOES overcome evil (Rom 12:21) and it’s My kindness that leads to repentance (Rom 2:4). Count on it!
And remember – you and I are the majority!
Stand STRONG and see the salvation of your God (2 Chron 20:17).
Remember always that Jesus is the Rock of your salvation (Ps 18:2), your Strong Tower that you can run to and be safe (Ps 18:10 and 61:3).
He is also the Rock formed without hands spoken of in the book of Daniel, that crushes the kingdom of man (which is enmeshed with the powers of darkness), then becomes a great mountain that fills the whole earth. This is what’s happening now if you only have eyes to see and ears to hear. [The Lord has shown me more on this that I will share more about later…]
It’s so important to always guard your heart in Me. Your heart is where you store all the things I’ve shown you in life… every nugget of hope, every pearl of great price.
This is how you overcome the devil’s attempt to keep you off-balance, buffeted by strange winds of doctrine (more lies of the devil), or incorrect interpretations of My word and who I am in your life.
Guarding your heart and the truths I’ve downloaded into you over the years is how you “build your house [or your life] on the Rock,” and NOT on shifting sand. The Rock is Jesus, and you build your life on Him, the One who is immovable, constant, unchanging, unshakable, eternal, by guarding your heart and the secrets I have revealed to you over the years.
Let no man steal your crown. Don’t let the enemy trick you into leaving your position of authority in me by causing you to lose your composure, by causing you to give in to worry, fear, anger, discouragement, confusion, or any other “trigger” that would cause you to lose faith in Me. You must stay strong in knowing who you are in Jesus, and you must not give up your position in Me for anything or anyone.
This is how you stand your ground and defend your boundaries in Me.
This is how you take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ and tear down every vain imagination that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, when you get in the habit of turning every troubling situation, disturbing thought or vexing emotion, over to Me, so I can turn it around for your good and the good of others involved.
Trust me to lift you above every obstacle, everything outside your control. Haven’t I promised to turn everything the enemy meant for harm, around for your good? And I will, because I LOVE you and I’m faithful, even to complete the good work I’ve begun in your life (smile).
Shifting sand are the lies and deceptions the devil is constantly throwing around in his veiled attempt to destroy you. Don’t go there.
Simply stand. But stand TALL in the righteousness and resurrection power of Christ, knowing you ARE redeemed by His shed blood.
It’s not your own abilities or your own “self righteousness” that can save you anyway.
You know this. Most people don’t need anyone to tell them how miserably they’ve failed in life.
That’s why I’m here… to tell you how victorious you are – in Me.
You are victorious, you are successful, you are all winners – in Me.
You are the head and NOT the tail. And you rule and reign over My creation as joint-heirs with Jesus.
That’s the truth.
Now walk in it.
While very few people need to hear what failures they’ve been, EVERYONE needs to know Jesus in real time… Jesus personified, through everyone who believes in Him.
Keep in mind that no one can stand in His presence, including the most diabolically controlled person, and the demons themselves, all know who He is, and they wouldn’t think of trying to mess with Him because they already know they’d lose.
And the same power that raised Christ from the dead and causes demons to tremble is available to anyone who is totally surrendered to Christ and so trusting in His presence in their lives that they reflect His glory and power in every circumstance, right? This is how it was when Peter’s shadow fell on folks and they were healed. [The word shadow hear reminds me of the saying “shadow of things to come” also, because this anointing that breaks every yoke is on everyone who believes in Christ].
I AM your loving, sovereign, faithful Father in heaven. And you can trust Me because I am also your Almighty God, Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Ancient of Days, Alpha and Omega, the high court above every other court, the God outside of time who never breaks covenant, who is your ever present help in time of need. The only One true living God.
And I will NEVER stop loving you, no matter what you do or where you go, because I love who you are, no matter what – although I do get pretty excited about the lives that are changed when you act on the things I tell you to do.
Remember, faith without works is dead. So let Me move you out of your complacency today. Give Me ears that hear and a heart ready to go and do My bidding; always standing in the gap as My governing body, binding and loosing, allowing or not allowing things on earth, according to whether or not they are allowed in heaven. You be the judge in this, I trust you (smile).
END of God’s message.
I’ve been writing this for the past couple hours. And just as I typed the word “Selah,” I was struck with such a strong presence of God’s perfect peace, both inside the house and outside, as well… and when I looked outside, all was calm and the sun was breaking through.
This may not have been so dramatic except that there’s been a constant, raging wind and rain storm here for the past 2 days! I LOVE You LORD! ALL creations is still speaking of Your glory, all the time (smile).
Much love to everyone from the tundra in Ocean Shores,
Mary and Pat
PS I will prayerfully be writing more about what the Lord’s been showing me about how He is pouring out an infusion of truth and love all over the earth right now. Truth is exposing and overturning layers and layers of deception in the earth and God’s LOVE is making the truth “palatable” so we can process it, and take great comfort in knowing that our loving Father in heaven is right by our side in this great transition. His goodness is overcoming evil in an unprecedented way right now.
Be watching for truth everywhere you go and remember, truth is truth, no matter who’s speaking it… often it comes from unexpected places… so keep in mind Jesus, who IS truth, is manifesting truth everywhere right now as people are searching for it more than ever and are being awakened to it more and more.
He is also justice, peace, love, healing, hope, all things that desperate people everywhere are seeking, and all who seek these things WILL find them, because Jesus is manifesting them and making them available for ALL who seek, whether they know it’s Jesus behind them or not… this is how He draws people to Himself… they can’t have real peace, or real love, or any of the other things mentioned, without Him… so keep praying, believing, and looking for these types of manifestations in the lives of people around you so you can remind them where these infusions are coming from (smile).
He is also, right now, raising up multitudes of believers who are “covering” the earth, much like a massive cloud cover! People of faith who will not back down, a formidable force ordained by God to push back the forces of evil and establish His government on earth as it is in heaven.
Something to keep in mind, something He just “put together” for me as I was reading a book by Russ Walton about meteorology, is how real clouds that are full of water and reflect the sun form a rainbow.
If we think of the multitude of believers as clouds (the Bible refers to a cloud of witnesses in Hebrews 12), and we have Jesus inside us (John 7:38-39 “He who believes in Me, from his innermost being will flow rivers of living water”) and our Father shines His light on us, He sees a rainbow in us, as well (smile)… might sound corny at first, but it’s really profound when you think about it.
Jesus in us is the hope of glory and God’s reminder to never again destroy the earth through a flood. Gives a new meaning to the scripture that talks of “glory clouds” (because we have Jesus in us we carry His “glory” with us wherever we go) , and the verse that talks of Jesus coming “in a cloud” – just sayin’ (smile).
So be it, God. Selah.
God is tearing down everything that opposes Him, crushing the kingdom of man (which is enmeshed with the demonic realm), and building up everyone and everything that is for Him. The tearing down includes everything in our lives that doesn’t line up with His purpose in the earth.
So we have to trust the process. We have to fully embrace and yield to both sides of the process, so Jesus can have full access to everything in us and in our world.
In order to do this, we have to let go of every misconception, misunderstanding, preconceived idea, and wounding from the past, because any of these will hinder our ability to know the truth about what’s going on in the process.
Most notably, we tend to “color” what we see and hear based on our preconceived ideas about the people involved, i.e., if we are biased by the way they present themselves, how they dress, their accent, who they associate with… some of us even judge a person based on the color of their skin. This is such a ridiculous notion and prayerfully most of us don’t go there.
And sometimes it’s hard to really listen if someone’s abrasive or angry or they use profanity. In these cases, God may be giving us a glimpse into what’s really going on with them so we can pray for them. Never judge them wrongly, because anger is most always a sign that that person is really hurting, and if you respond in the wrong way, you just may have lost your chance to help them, and grow yourself in the process.
God is shaking things everywhere and everyone is feeling it right now, and no one likes it, except those of us who are wise enough to understand that God is behind it, and that it’s for the good of everyone who trusts in Him through it all.
So hold onto God right now more than ever. Look for Him, listen for Him everywhere, because He sometimes shows up in the least likely places, and speaks through the most unlikely people, when you least expect it.
That is when you can receive the most valuable intel, as He leads you “into all truth” (John 16:13), so you can stay the course as you co-labor with Him through the muck and the mire to complete the good work He began in your life (Phil 1:6).
Truth is truth no matter who speaks it, and if we are expert “gleaners” we will be able to pick up on it, no matter where it comes from. This is essential right now.
It’s also important to keep in mind that many of the “truth seekers” or “truth warriors” who are exposing evil in the world face a huge amount of opposition. They could use our appreciation and they need our prayers.
We are in this together whether we like it or not, and as Martin Luther King, Jr. said:
“We must learn to live together as brothers or we will perish together as fools.”
I hear the Father say: “I put before you this day life and death, and I say ‘choose life.’” Deut. 30:19
Choose the way that leads to healing, redemption and restoration of all that our enemy has stolen from us.
Stand in the righteousness and authority of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the One who came in the flesh, whose two-sided sword brings mercy for everyone who trusts in Him, and justice on all His enemies.
We can trust the One who created us in His image and said “it is good.”
We can trust the One whose love is unconditional, unequivocal, eternal and unfailing.
Whose kindness leads us to repentance and whose goodness overcomes evil.
Who will always be way more powerful than all the hordes of hell combined.
Whose arm is never too short and nothing escapes His notice.
Who we are seated with in heavenly places, far above the powers of darkness, doctrines of demons and wisdom of men.
Who we rule and reign with over all creation.
Whose name is above every other name, the name under which every knee bows and every tongue confesses that Jesus Christ is LORD over all.
The first born of all the rest of us sons and daughters of the Most High God, our loving Father in heaven, our Creator, Ancient of Days, Alpha and Omega.
The God who is outside of time who never breaks covenant and is always our ever present help in time of need.
The One we get to spend all of eternity with in paradise.
God is so much greater than all the things that concern us right now.
So Lord, we roll ALL our cares on your amazing shoulders, as we rest here with You on your mercy seat, so grateful for your awesome love.
Resting in the peace that passes understanding as we keep our minds stayed on You.
Continuing to commit our way to You everyday so You can make our path straight.
So grateful that You are the Great Physician, most wise and wonderful counselor, my best friend and comrade in arms…
So grateful that we travel this journey of life together and you will never leave us or forsake us. Ever.
I remain totally devoted to you, Jesus, my Lord, my Savior, my saving grace, my Deliverer, my Strong Tower.
We are all on a journey and God is teaching us many things. All of us, whether we acknowledge Him yet or not, because He came to save the whole world, whether we like it or not.
Some of us Christians have a hard time accepting the fact that God could actually save certain people, but the only right way for us to think about that is to remember that we are all saved by grace.
None of us can earn our way to heaven, but thankfully, He’s given all of us the ability to choose Him, He’s extended the invitation to EVERYONE, and it’s His will that we ALL will choose Him. How could He be the Savior of the world and not extend this hope to all mankind?
He will always be LOVE, He will always forgive EVERYONE who asks Him to, and He will NEVER turn ANYONE away who comes to Him with a broken and contrite heart. NEVER. If He did, He wouldn’t be God.
We don’t have to like someone in order to love them the way God wants us to love them.
Because God’s love supersedes our ability to like someone. I’m sure He doesn’t always like me or some of the things I do. But He ALWAYS loves me, nonstop. And if I let Him, He will change me more and more into the image of His amazing Son… a process He’s been working on all my life.
I try every day to share ONLY what the Lord shows me, in a way that will encourage and edify everyone who sees or hears what I write or say.
Doesn’t mean I’m perfect at it, or that you will like or agree with everything I say.
Let me just say something about that, something the Lord’s been developing in me for years.
Whenever I disagree with someone, God is giving me a chance to grow, and pray for an upgrade, a healing, a promotion in Jesus, for the person I disagree with and for me.
If I respond in love, in a way that promotes peace in Jesus, only speaking if I really need to, but resting in God’s ability to right every wrong (even in me), then we’re getting somewhere (smile).
Most everyone I share with is very appreciative, but every once in awhile, someone (usually a fellow Christian, for some strange reason), gets all up in arms about something I say that messes with their paradigm, their belief system. It doesn’t even have to be anything major. It seems that the smallest thing can sometimes set someone off.
So I pray and bless them in Jesus, because it’s the right thing to do, and I know God will bless me ONLY if I do that (He judges us whenever we judge others wrongly).
I also am careful to guard my own heart against any feelings of condemnation or confusion or discouragement from the enemy as I turn these things over to God, looking to Him to redirect me in anyway needful, and to heal me of anything hidden that would cause me to walk in error… because the last thing I want to do is cause anyone to stumble because of anything I do or say.
And I want to encourage you as God has encouraged me, that we are obligated only to share the things God reveals to us in love, to the best of our ability, and trust everything and everyone else, including the results of our sharing, to Him.
Then, if anyone comes against you, you have a clear conscience before God and you have not given place to the devil through any wrongdoing on your part, and anyone who would try to come against you has to go through Jesus, your defender and the defender of all truth.
January 30, 2017
Dear President Trump,
You promised we would be heard, yet you are not hearing us!
Our concerns are valid and they affect EVERYONE in this nation and the world, including you, Mr. President, yet we are NOT being heard.
You said you would respond to any and all of our concerns if we bring them to you. We have been bringing them to you because we want to believe you are a man of integrity, a man of your word… someone who does what’s right even when no one is looking.
You have told us you know how to get things done and that you push until you get what you want. What if what you want is something that we do NOT want, and what if we’re right and you’re wrong?
I was VERY concerned to learn that you have reopened negotiations re: DAPL and Keystone, in spite of never ONCE having even said “I hear your concerns and I’m looking into them.” Instead, it seems you are bent on ramming this down our throats, in spite of the fact that in this, I believe we are right and you are SO wrong.
I hope I’m wrong about your intentions, but it’s not looking like I am.
Are you really going to keep pushing anyway, and steamroll things against our wishes like all our previous presidents have done, or can we actually TRUST you to do what’s right by the American people you swore to serve and protect? You know, when you took office and said we the people are now taking our nation back?
You promised in your inauguration speech to give this nation back to us… was that just rhetoric or do you actually mean it, like we hope you do?
This isn’t like all the protests being funded by Soros and others who are using those protestors to stir up trouble and cause a smoke screen to divert us from the real issues that are facing us as a nation…
Nor am I talking about climate change or global warming, because I believe those are lies.
What I AM talking about are genuine concerns by countless people in this country whose lives have been deeply impacted (negatively) by over-zealous oil industries (and coal mine operations), who are desperately trying to get the attention of SOMEONE who will stop the madness and protect our land, our water, our very lives and our planet.
WILL SOMEONE PLEASE LISTEN?!?!?!?!
You know as well as I do, Mr. President, that we the people have been lied to so many times over many, many years, and our past government has NOT been working on our behalf to build a better country… in fact, quite the opposite is true.
So if you refuse to listen to the legitimate concerns of the American people, you will be just like every other lying President who has been pushing their own agenda of destroying our morale, our physical health, our land, our water, our air, our food source, our vocation and ability to make money, just to save your own NWO agenda. Is that really who you are? Is that really what you want the American people to believe you are?
I pray that’s not the case.
But honestly, what recourse do we have when you DON’T listen?
If this were a real corporation, there would be someone in office who was hired to hear grievances and act on them.
Who is that person in YOUR office? Who do we go to when you won’t hear us (besides God, of course… we are talking to Him all the time and we are so thankful that He really DOES hear us and always has our best interests at heart… the problem with that is, He doesn’t “have skin on” – yes, He works through people, so we NEED someone on the ground. A real, live person who will not only LISTEN, but take us seriously and make sure our concerns are acted on appropriately.
Know anybody like that?
We NEED to be heard (as you have promised, numerous times!)
We the people have legitimate needs and we are appealing to your sense of decency and compassion for the people of this country.
Please do NOT continue to ignore us.
And PLEASE do NOT push the Keystone or the DAPL or any other agenda down our throats in spite of the fact that we the people are doing our part to reach out to you as you have instructed, yet you continue to ignore us.
As I said, this is not about global warming or climate change. I believe we’ve been fed lies about those things to serve the shadow government’s agenda to “depopulize” the world, as Bill Gates and others have said (google Bill Gates on this, especially his TED speech where he talks of depopulizing 10-15% of the world population by the year 2030).
I have seen other references (including a monument etched in stone) indicating a NWO plan to reduce the world publication from over 7 billion to 500 million. That’s nothing short of genocide and we know it… we’re not as stupid as the shadow government would like to think and we have all of heaven in agreement with us. We also know about the false flags and drone attacks leveled on innocent countries in third world countries by our recent present. Pure evil. And it HAS to stop!
These are serious threats that are being leveled against the good people of this country and other nations, as well. I believe you already know the damage that GMOs and “new” vaccines and pesticides and chemicals have done to our health, our land, water, our atmosphere, crops, livestock, most of the food sold on our grocery shelves and ALL the food sold in non-organic restaurants, especially all the fast food restaurants. Not to mention the damage done by chem trails, and harmful levels of radiation from things such as cell towers and “smart” meters in our homes and neighborhoods.
But if you don’t know, google Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF), and teaching videos by Sally Fallon (it’s founder and CEO), and look up a documentary called “The Beautiful Truth,” and others who are brave enough to stand up and tell the truth.
Bottom line – we NEED to protect our land and water and air – at ALL cost. If we don’t, who will? We NEED to find a way to protect our trees, our plants and wildlife. God put us here as guardians and we are to be good stewards of our ecosystem. Instead, we have brutalized it, to our own demise. If you live in an area that has an extensive lumber industry like we do, you know what I’m talking about. I’m seeing whole treed areas disappear, and it’s devastating to everyone and everything that depends on them for survival. Once we destroy planet Earth, we’re done. There is no Plan B.
We the people need protection… from other people and organizations (like Bill Gates, Monsanto and others) who are destroying us through GMOs, pesticides, hormones and steroids and harmful vaccines that are destroying our crops, cattle and dairy cows. Chemicals and poisons, not only in the growing of our food, but preservatives and other chemicals used in the processing of our food as it’s prepared to sell in our stores… not to mention all the harmful chemicals in the majority of the water currently supplied to the majority of our homes.
People also need to understand how most of the inherent nutrients found naturally in organic food and raw milk are stripped in the way our food is processed and through the pasteurization of our milk, so by the time we buy it on the shelves, it barely resembles what it was originally, and contains additional, cancer-causing ingredients that were never there in its original state.
This is a travesty and NEEDS to stop.
Our land and water need to heal, and the good people who were forced off their farms and ranches by our government and big business need to be able to return to their way of life. Their way of caring for the land and growing crops and livestock the way God intended.
We do NOT need Bill Gates or anyone else selling us their propaganda of how “important” it is to contaminate our land and food with pesticides and other harmful chemicals, or be forced to plant seeds that have been so genetically “modified” that they are not only no longer healthy, but now contain ingredients that cause cancer. This is happening in other countries, as well… look up how Bill Gates’s push on vaccines has harmed the people of Kenya and how the people in India have been destroyed by Monsanto and the oil industry.
Mr. President, we NEED to protect our land and water from the ravages of the oil industry. This is a KNOWN fact, and you seem to be IGNORING it, much to our distress.
We the people KNOW how harmful oil spills are to our land and water.
We also KNOW that the oil companies don’t care and will stop at nothing to achieve their agenda, including covering up the damage they are causing, not to mention the lives that are lost in work-related accidents, and the people and animals whose lives are being destroyed by the after-affects of being subjected to harmful chemicals that are released in the extracting and transporting of the oil.
I believe most of these work-related accidents are preventable, but the oil companies push production so much, they are constantly overlooking safety protocol and driving their employees to days and days of non-stop work hours, as many as 100 hours a week, for years, or until the oil dries up (which is the case in North Dakota right now, so the DAPL isn’t even needed)…
The oil in North Dakota will likely be gone by the time the pipeline is finished, especially if you have the pipe made here in the US like you stated in the memorandum you wrote recently on the issue. Where do you plan to make them? Do we already have the factories to do this, or will we need to build them, as well? And how long will that take, for a project that will only provide temporary jobs, to produce oil that will not even be used by US citizens, and will likely push the project out even further, before the pipeline can be completed, only to find out there’s no more oil?
Do you honestly think there will be any oil left in North Dakota by the time this is done (remember, it’s already drying up)? I suppose you could always stop pumping until after the factories and pipeline are built, which would only result in more lost revenue for the oil companies (which is all right by me, but probably NOT by them J
And what will you do with the factories once the pipeline is built and you don’t need them anymore?
In addition, you MUST be aware of the many men who have procured lung cancer and other life threatening diseases from years of breathing the coal dust in our coal mines?
Do you care about these people or are you like every other politician and billionaire in this country who care only about driving your own agenda at the expense of everyone else?
There are better ways to provide energy to the American people… besides, the DAPL and Keystone pipelines don’t EVEN provide oil for the American people… these pipelines are being proposed so we can sell our oil to OTHER countries.
We believe alternative methods already exist and are available, but our government has tried to convince us there is no other way.
We believe there is a more efficient way to harness wind and solar energy.
We also have reason to believe that the people who run our space program have discovered a way to provide pollution-free electrical energy for use in air craft designed by such companies as Lockheed Martin and others, but the general public was never allowed to hear about it. May I ask why? What possible reason could our government have for withholding important information like this from us?
I know of at least one person who knows how to build a machine to convert our garbage into fuel. This is a win-win for everyone, because it will take care of our growing garbage problem, as well. This man is a civil engineer working for the Department of Defense. If I give you his name and contact information, will you promise to at least talk to him?
I REFUSE to believe that huge pipelines that cross the heartland of America, across many states (and Native American territory given to them by treaty) is necessary… and I don’t see a benefit that could outweigh the growing concerns we have for our land and water. It’s a proven fact that pipelines break… it’s not a matter of if, but when. And the pipelines you want to build are very large in circumference and cover thousands of miles, so when these break, the resulting damage will be unprecedented!
We can sell other things in foreign trade to make money for this country.
Let’s look at some other alternatives to solve our energy needs… ways that are smarter, cleaner and more efficient, and won’t destroy our planet in the process (smile)
There has to be ways to access oil in other places. North Dakota is not the only place to drill for oil. So why don’t we extract it in locations that are close to the refineries or plants that process the oil for our use?
I recently saw an interview with Admiral Byrd where he spoke of his explorations to Antarctica in the early 50s, when he discovered vast amounts of coal and oil and possibly some uranium. This place has apparently been placed off limits by some sort of UN “treaty” signed by the US and 50 other countries.
This discovery has been covered up and most people know nothing about it. I just have to ask… why?
I have other questions about the UN logo also. It looks an awful lot like a flat world map, which brings up a whole list of other questions about the shadow government and different ways our federal government has lied to us over the years.
Anyway, I digress.
We NEED to protect our land and water, and
We NEED to find a BETTER way to serve the energy needs of the American people that won’t destroy us in the process.
God’s ways don’t come with baggage, nor do they benefit only a handful of people while destroying others, our land and our water.
So why don’t we commit this problem to God and see what He has to say about it? Then do as He tells us? If you’re truly a Godly man like we hope you are, you shouldn’t have a problem with that at all, right?
This protest is NOT funded by Soros.
This is a legitimate, desperate complaint by “we the people,” the very ones you PROMISED to serve and protect, the forgotten ones you PROMISED would be forgotten NO MORE, the ones you PROMISED would be given their nation back,
Standing for their Constitutional rights as US citizens to protect their land and water!
How can you continue to ignore us? Your refusal to even listen to the cries of thousands and thousands of people in this country makes you look like nothing more than a callous, uncaring dictator, much like Hitler was to the German people long ago.
Is that how you WANT to be known? Because right now your actions in this regard are speaking WAY louder than your words, and the message you are conveying is NOT good!
We know you have money invested in the oil industry, so you have a vested interest in seeing these oil companies succeed, seemingly at the expense of the American people, our water, our land, our planet.
But PLEASE re-evaluate this thing before it’s too late!
It does appear you may be headed in the right direction re: our national security and repealing Obamacare (at least I hope so).
But do NOT turn a blind eye to what’s going on in North Dakota, just because they are “the little people,” the least populated state in the country.
God is NOT happy with what we are being threatened with, and He will NOT be mocked.
That’s about all I can say for now, but know this. We will not stop, because DAPL and Keystone are NOT in our best interests. We know this and will not stand down. There is too much at stake.
If you are truly a man of your word like we all hope you are, and if you are really willing to fight for the good of “we the people,”
Then you have no choice, but to be the one who “stands down” on this very important issue, instead of “pushing until you get what you want” as you have stated you like to do.
We are convinced that pushing until you get what you want is something you are good at, but this only works for us when you want the same thing we want.
If we don’t want what you want, you have a choice to make.
- Continue to be a bully and push your own agenda, contrary to our wishes, thereby steamrolling us and pushing this thing down our throats (to the demise of ALL America, yourself included, affecting the whole world in a very negative way, possibly beyond repair), OR
- Humble yourself and pray. Ask God what you’re missing (because like it or not, there are at least 2 sides to every conflict). Ask Him what you’re NOT seeing, and what His solution is. Because I guarantee His solution will NOT be one that benefits only a handful of people while destroying everyone else.
The first option above is what we’re used to, under past tyrannical administrations. But if we truly wanted a continuation of this kind of abuse on the part of our governmental leaders, we would have voted your opponent into office, not you.
Do what’s right here, Mr. President. You HAVE to address this or you will lose the confidence of countless Americans, and quite frankly, the alternative, if you continue to push this through at our expense, and fail, there will be disastrous consequences for everyone.
Let’s start here, with resolving our energy needs God’s way…
Then we can begin to address some of the other horrific problems that are threatening our planet.
Like making it illegal for mothers to continue murdering their unborn, and stop the genocide of over 50 million babies and counting (and that’s JUST in the US)
Like stopping the moral degradation of the people, but especially our children and young adults who are being force-fed lies and propaganda in our schools that they must “tolerate” transgenders, homosexuality and other forms of sexual perversion, under the guise of “alternative lifestyles” – which is a total abomination and nothing more than a veiled attempt by the devil to raise our children in a culture that not only accepts these heinous acts of perversion, but grooms them as potential sex slaves or worse.
It is no secret that pedophilia exists and is linked to satanic acts of abuse, torture and murder of small children and infants, and that there is a huge cover-up that involves people who have been compromised in every level of our government, law enforcement and Hollywood. People who are so given over to the devil that the evil they personify is horrendous.
This is true, and I believe you know this.
I’m telling everyone I know to boycott our public school system, all the mainstream media, TV, the entire mainstream movie and music industry, especially every “artist” who has blatantly displayed satanic symbolism or sexual depravation. We have more than enough “legitimate” independent and local artists in this country who need our support; we don’t need to support a system that destroys them.
We can no longer tolerate this evil to rule our lives. Not only is it destroying our morale, our lifestyle, our health, our economy and our ability to make a living, if left unchecked, it will destroy our lives and our planet.
My question to you, Mr. President, is the same question I now pose to everyone else:
What are you willing to do about it?
Many of us feel our hands are tied and there’s only so much we can do. But I plan to build up as many people as I can and encourage everyone to do their part in joining with family and friends and others in their neighborhoods to build a stronger community.
By supporting our local musicians, actors, artists, local businesses (including local banks or credit unions), our neighborhood mechanic, local farmers and ranchers, local organic grocers, organic restaurants… i.e. make sure all our needs are met locally so we don’t have to rely on corrupt federal agencies who want nothing more than to destroy us.
I’m encouraging everyone I know to boycott every area of our society which means us harm, while continuing to make our voice heard by every mayor, city council member, governor, senator, congressman/woman, and you, Mr. President, until we are finally heard.
So there is no mistake about it.
We ARE taking our nation back.
We stand in solidarity and we stand in the righteousness and authority of Jesus Christ of Nazareth who lives in us as overcomers, standing against all the forces of evil that have been working to destroy us for many, many years.
We stand in the name of Jesus, calling on our Creator, the God who is outside of time and never breaks covenant, who is our ever present help in time of need, because of the shed blood of Jesus, who is our Savior, Healer, Protector, Provider and Lord… Standing for heavenly justice on earth as it is in heaven, meaning we only allow here on earth what is already allowed in heaven.
We stand for mercy on ALL who trust in Him, and for full restoration and redemption of EVERYTHING the enemy has stolen from us.
In the mighty name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace who is even now crushing satan under our feet.
And we stand for the healing of our land and water, relying on 2 Chron 7:14, the same scripture Mr. Pence put his hand on in the Bible when he was sworn into office, which says:
If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray,
seek My face and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and HEAL THEIR LAND.
Lord have your way and REDEEM us, we pray.
For “We the People”
February 1, 2017
Here’s what the Lord put on my heart to share here as I was praying this morning.
There are a few things I feel I’m to share, the first has to do with my prayer life. I have been deeply devoted to Christ since 1980, in an amazing journey of discovery… learning more and more and more about our Father in heaven, the Holy Spirit and my amazing Lord, Savior, Deliverer, Healer, Protector, Provider (and many other things, He really IS EVERYTHING to me, and He is IN everything, everywhere), Jesus Christ.
The most important thing I have learned is to live a life completely yielded to Him ALL the time. This is something I’ve been developing over the years… the ability to be mindful of Christ’s presence in my life more and more and more, so that now, I am aware of Him with me and in me, every waking moment.
And throughout the night, since I have developed the habit of committing my sleep and my dreams to Him, I am even more aware of Him at times, more able to receive from Him, on a subconscious level, and semi-consciously, when I am lying down praying before sleep at night, and as I “slowly” wake up in the morning. My daytime awareness is becoming stronger and stronger also, as I am getting better and better at yielding myself to Him throughout every day.
Anyone can do this, whoever has a love for Christ and a STRONG desire to know Him and make Him known (the real reason why any of us are here, really).
So as I awaken each day, I journal things He’s shown me throughout the night through dreams and prayers of intercession… He often wakens me in the night to pray, which is always a joy… sometimes a challenge when my body would rather sleep… but I am ALWAYS rewarded EVERY time I fight the urge to go back to sleep and rouse myself to spend time with Him… ALWAYS!
And as I am journaling in the morning, He downloads things. He has also brought a LOT of healing, even delivering me from afflictions of the evil one as I have lingered in His presence… He is so amazing, so loving, so good.
So I encourage everyone to journal as much as you can. It’s something anyone can do and it is its own reward (smile).
As He shows me things and I journal them, I find it’s easier to remember them, and I can refer back to my journal if I want to remember something I may have forgotten… this is easier to do if you have a journal either online or on your desktop that you can access every day. I have one called “The Journal” by DavidRM Software, which was recommended to me by Doug Addison. I still have my other notebook with me all the time, though, that I handwrite my notes in, because for me, it’s easier to access, and right now, it’s the one I use all the time. The downside of journaling this way, obviously, is it’s harder to organize your thoughts and/or reference them later on.
Then I want to encourage everyone to share what the Lord shows you, with as many people as you can (unless, of course, it’s something He wants you to hold dear to your heart, or it’s something that’s just for you personally, and you’ll know the difference as you continue to seek Him in all things). There’s nothing more joyous than sharing the good things that God gives me with others.
Also, the very act of journaling brings me a lot of clarity and “grounds” me emotionally, helps me process things and remember them better. I bet the same could be true for you if you give it a try.
And at some point every day (often when I’m outside walking and celebrating His goodness in creating the universe), I pray through the Lord’s Prayer (again, something EVERYONE can do). This daily prayer of mine has been supplemented over the years by the Lord’s leading, to include additional portions of scripture, praying to put on the full armor of God, and certain other declarations according to other portions of scripture having to do with my walk with the Lord… so I am really “praying the Word” in doing this.
This daily prayer is more important than you may initially think… I have been praying this way for the past 36 years, most every day.
The Lord started developing this prayer years ago, about the same time that He spoke through a prophecy given to me about God developing a prayer in me that would free a family member from a false religion that he was wrapped up in, that the prayer would be like a bull dozer, and a whirlwind in destroying that thing… and that after 2 years of intercession, this person would walk away from it.
Well, God did what the man said He would do, and I am so grateful.
I am still praying the prayer, however. I knew when God led me to pray it, it wasn’t just for that one purpose, as it covers a LOT of territory (smile) and involves everyone in my “sphere of influence” as the Lord allows… sometimes I’m praying for the whole world (as is often the case more recently)…
At times I have questioned God as to whether I’m to keep praying this way, and each time, I feel impressed by Him to continue… in fact, any given day when I put off praying this prayer, I can ALWAYS tell the difference… something happens where I know it’s the enemy messing with me in a way that my loved ones and I are normally protected from when I “pray the prayer.”
He has also shown me that this prayer “seals” my loved ones and me, and the work He’s doing in our lives, i.e. much of my other time with the Lord is spent journaling revelations and prayers of intercession as He leads me, then when I “pray the prayer” I am sealing the things He and I just worked through in prayer as I sit at His feet with my pen ready to record what He shows me.
And I often just say, “Right now, Lord, I put the blood of Jesus over myself, over the words I’m speaking, over my husband, my dog, our home, our cars, Pat’s workplace, our family, loved ones, and everyone and everything in our sphere of influence (which often includes the world), and declare that we are off limits to the evil one, that he won’t even be able to hear our words, much less take advantage of them or us in any way.”
I do this when I’m sharing things with someone that I sense might be “sensitive” material (something the devil won’t like) or I sense a vulnerability in some way that the devil may otherwise try to take advantage of, giving us and whatever we’re discussing over to the Lord so He can watch over us all and protect us from any retaliation, and counter any counter attack of the evil one.
So the daily prayer seals us and the people we are standing with, and protects all of us AND the work God is doing in our lives. He is often releasing “upgrades” and “promotions” in the prayers we speak… bringing deliverance and breakthrough, financial blessings, healing, etc., so any “new ground” we take in Jesus, will not be stolen or delayed or distorted by the enemy.
Anyone can do this, and I encourage everyone to do so.
Yield yourself to Christ ALL the time, journal what He shows you and pray the Lord’s Prayer every day. I believe you will be astounded as I have been, at the many wonderful ways God blesses you.
Of course, I encourage you to add other portions of scripture to your daily prayer, as well, as the Lord leads you, but don’t worry about this, just take it as He gives it, and rejoice in how His goodness will begin to transform your life in ways you never imagined (smile).
The next thing I feel I’m to share is something I was praying about today having to do with our government. We know that the past 8 years we’ve had a Muslim President who was adhering to Sharia law and the beliefs of radical Islamism, working under the “façade” of “supporting” the beliefs of a Christian nation. This is not welcome news to any of us, but it is, nevertheless, true. We were duped.
For more information about how Islam has infiltrated our nation, Kevin Shipp (ex-CIA) is an excellent resource… there are many documentaries of his lectures on YouTube, and he wrote a book about this called From the Company of Shadows. I haven’t read it yet, but from what I’ve seen, the guy really knows his stuff and isn’t afraid to share, something I greatly appreciate… because knowledge really IS power. Let’s make sure that power is transferred to the right hands, i.e. people like us, who love the Lord and want to see this nation healed and restored.
Long before Obama took office (way before I knew he was gonna bring so much harm to the American people, and other nations, as well), the Lord gave me a vision where Jesus came to me as our Commander in Chief and said “There’s gonna be a hostile takeover from the inside.”
I knew this was gonna be bad (I had no idea HOW bad), but because it was God telling me this, I knew I could trust Him with it, no matter how bad it was. I also knew I was to lay down my public ministry, at least for a season, and let Him take care of the hostile takeover that He was warning me about.
So I laid down my ministry, for the most part. I still prayed and worshipped with friends once in awhile and God still gave me songs of deliverance and intercession in my alone time with Him, and I shared some in small gatherings, but not nearly as much as I had been doing.
I wasn’t worried about what was to come, because I KNOW some things about the God I serve! He is awesome, He is mighty, He is STILL on the throne and ALWAYS will be! He will ALWAYS have my best interests at heart and HE ALWAYS has the final say… the enemy may think he’s all powerful when he pulls something over on us, but the FINAL victory ALWAYS belongs to the King of Kings, the Lord of Hosts, my Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the One who came in the flesh, the one I love and serve ALL the days of my life.
And Believers are finally waking up and taking a stand for God’s righteousness and justice.
And things are turning.
And we now get the chance to take our nation back and commit it once and for all, to HIM.
What I was praying this morning is that God would remove every threat in our government, our military, our law enforcement, our legal system, media, educational system, internet, hollywood, finance, banking, business, arts and entertainment, our homes, our neighborhoods, by ANYONE serving Allah (the god of Islam), or any other pagan god, and NO one would EVER be allowed to darken our shores again with a nefarious agenda to destroy us while pretending to be our friend. EVER.
We are calling in Godly, God-fearing men and women into EVERY position of leadership in this country and we will settle for NOTHING less. No more counterfeits, no more substitutes, NO MORE wolves in sheep’s clothing.
No more pretenders; people pretending to adhere to our belief system with hidden NWO agendas and/or promoting radical Islam, taking over our government and law enforcement and destroying us in the process. No more, in the mighty name of Jesus. Remember, Muslims believe America is “the Infidel” and their “god” given purpose is to stop at nothing until we are destroyed.
We call forth men and women of God with legitimate authority in Christ. Who walk in true humility knowing that it’s only through Jesus that we can do all things, ‘cause without Him we can do NOTHING.
Godly, God-fearing men and women in leadership positions in EVERY area of our society.
And God, give us much discernment so we really can become “wise as serpents” as well as harmless as doves, and be able to spot a lie a mile away. We can’t be deceived by someone if we don’t believe their lies.
Then I was praying about social media, specifically facebook because many of us use it, and share concerns about how it’s been infiltrated by certain people in our government who have been spying on us, “surveiling” our usage, collecting our personal data, etc.
And I was praying against any and all threats, foreign and domestic, to our lives, our freedom, our national security, our right to privacy, etc. There’s much more I could say about that, as well, but I want to stay on track… I will say only that this rabbit trail goes way deeper than many of us thought. None of us asked for it and nobody wants it or likes it.
So let’s ALL stand AGAINST it and let your voice be heard – loud and clear, to anyone who will listen, including all your senators and congressmen/women, and our President, until our rights as US citizens, our freedom, safety and privacy are fully restored, in Jesus’ name.
In the meantime, I want to share one other thing regarding facebook and social media and the concern about surveillance or stalking by our government.
I encourage you to keep using the internet as a tool, as long as it’s available to you, but make it work FOR you, not against you. In other words, put on there anything and everything you want or don’t mind the whole world seeing (including anyone who might be spying on you). If you are walking uprightly before God, your Father in heaven, with Jesus and the Holy Spirit in you and by your side, as your witness, advocate and strong tower, then you have nothing to hide and anyone who might have a problem with you has to answer to Him.
I’ve heard other “truth seekers” who don’t even publicly claim to be Christians, talk about how the evil they are exposing won’t touch them as long as they don’t give in to fear… how much more is this true for those of us who belong to the Kingdom of God and have all of heaven on our side?!
My life’s been threatened before, in real time (smile), both indirectly by folks in “the church” with wrong motives and demonic influences, and directly, yet covertly, by folks involved in Satanism, and indirectly because of people close to me who were involved in secret societies who were afflicted by the demonic realm, and a prior marriage to a Christian man who was addicted to sexual perversions that I won’t go into here.
Those were some of the most alarming, difficult experiences I’ve ever had, but I’ve had others, as well, and each experience taught me many invaluable lessons from God that I would never have learned otherwise. Same is true for you.
I’ve also had to fight my way through a TON of guilt and condemnation over the fact that I allowed a man to take the life of my unborn baby… this made every other bad experience I’ve ever had, pale in comparison to the grief and condemnation that gripped me for years and years and years.
God has brought me through a LOT, my friend, and I will be eternally grateful!
And He protected me and delivered me from ALL of it! You see the common thread? There are demonic forces in the world who want nothing more than to destroy us. It’s true.
But the over-riding thing to hold onto here is how very great our God is! He is always gonna be so much greater and so much more powerful than ALL the hordes of hell combined, and He will ALWAYS be FOR you, and His love for you is immeasurable, unconditional, eternal, and covers ALL your sin, casts out ALL your fear.
Many of you have had experiences similar to mine, so you KNOW how much power and authority we have IN CHRIST, in overcoming the schemes of the evil one.
Stand STRONG in Christ, BELIEVING. Cast ALL your cares on Him, knowing He cares for you, He has your back, He goes before you, He encamps around those who fear Him and Him alone…
He’s your Strong Tower (the place where you are ALWAYS safe), your Psalm 91…
And anyone who tries to come against you for any reason has to go through HIM.
So in HIM, you are absolutely, unequivocally, safe, strong, protected, provided for, until the moment He takes you home.
We do NOT allow ourselves to be removed from this planet, or our bodies to decay, until God says so, and we stand together against ANY and ALL adversaries who would say otherwise.
In the matchless, beautiful, mighty name of Yeshua, the Christ, in whom we now stand.
December 8, 2016
Dear Mr. President-Elect Trump,
I very much appreciate the fact that you are someone who knows how to get things done, and as you said, you push until you get what you want.
This last part is very reassuring, as long as you want the same things we do.
What happens, though, if we push back because you’re wrong about something that is directly impacting us in a very destructive way? Will you then admit you’re wrong, change directions and help us in our time of great need? Or will you ignore our cries for help and continue on, steamrolling us in the process?! I surely hope and pray not.
There is a great white elephant in the room that NO ONE is addressing.
You absolutely NEED to look at what’s happening at Standing Rock… because in my opinion, the tyranny in our government is responsible, and the people there, who are peacefully protesting (unlike all of the Soros protestors who maimed and killed bystanders, destroying millions of dollars of public property in their attempt to incite a civil war…) are being brutalized by law enforcement (you know the people who took an oath to protect them?!) – unlike all the thousands of HRC protestors who literally got away with MURDER and by and large, our law enforcement did NOTHING to stop them – huge double standard there, don’t you think?!?!?!
These people speak not only for Native Americans (whose need is massive in itself), but also for countless Americans, mostly in rural America… the farmers and ranchers who were forced off their farms and ranches by the same government that has been mistreating our Native Americans all these years… by and large, our government has NEVER stopped harassing and mistreating them… and they still have not been able to recover from so many years of hostility on the part of the US government. Yet, they still come in peace, praying for a peaceful resolution to a great need that is affecting ALL of us! (We can never deserve such grace on their part…)
Talk about post-traumatic stress… has their level of stress EVER been reduced to the point where they have any hope of a full recovery?!?!?!
The issue of the keystone pipeline may have been delayed, but it is FAR from being resolved… Even as they were protesting, a large section of another pipeline in ND failed, resulting in significant destruction of land and wildlife…
I do NOT believe this pipeline is the right answer, or the best one for the US.
I have written several letters, emails, tweets and facebook posts to you regarding this very important issue and so far, I haven’t received a single response. Very disconcerting. You gave us many promises during your campaign that you would actually listen to the cries of US citizens for justice and restoration of all that we’ve lost under the current and prior administrations in our federal government.
I believe we need to turn back to God as a nation in every area of society… including morally, in every level of government and law enforcement, education, finances, business and media… if we don’t drain the swamp completely, whatever remains will continue to fester and grow and cause more destruction. It has to be a clean sweep and a complete turning back to our Father in heaven, in Jesus’ name.
As I stated in my earlier letters, posts and emails, I think there are better ways to harness energy. I also think our government has known of the better ways, but hasn’t wanted us to know about them because they wanted to sell their agenda and keep their loyalties in buying our oil from terrorists.
Instead of oil, why don’t we look into more effective ways to harness solar and wind? And/or look into the already proven ways we can convert our garbage to fuel? A way to convert garbage into fuel has already been researched and developed, it’s just not widely known and I believe it needs to be patented, marketed, and mass produced… but it’s doable… and it would take care of the huge problem we have in disposing huge amounts of garbage… a win-win for everyone.
If we commit this issue over to God and trust Him for His best solution, I know He will show us a way that will benefit everyone, not just benefitting some while harming others… this is the American way, is it not??!!?!?!
I believe a government FOR the people, not AGAINST the people, would be willing to rethink this, and find a solution that would also protect additional, but unnecessary destruction of our land and water…
Our land and water has already undergone more than enough harm under past administrations that have forced countless farmers and ranchers off their land, so they could then take over the land, and contaminate it and the crops and livestock grown there… this contamination has resulted in steadily increasing health problems, many of which are life threatening, and our mainstream medical professionals cannot cure them.
We NEED to turn back to God in these matters if we have any hope at all of healing our land. 2 Chron 7:14 “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, seek My face, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS… THEN I will hear from heaven (but not before we humble ourselves and turn from ways of destruction), forgive their sins and HEAL THEIR LAND.”
The US government has taken over most of our farms and ranches, and contaminated not only the land with their chemicals and pesticides, and the crops and livestock that feed off that land, but stocked our grocery shelves with food that is not only NOT good for us, but contains those same chemicals and pesticides, plus other chemicals and toxins which have been added in the processing of those foods, and destroying most, if not all, of any nutrients (and “good” bacteria) which were inherent to that food before it was stripped of its healing properties the way God originally intended for our use and good health.
This CANNOT go on.
The American people need to know and deserve to know what, if anything, you plan to do about it.
We also NEED to know the extent of the illegal surveillance that our federal government has forced on innocent US citizens (who have a right to privacy) and what you plan to do about removing said surveillance….
And we need to know now.
Also, we are ALL counting on you to do as you promised, in reversing every harmful executive order that Obama ever put in place, including, but not limited to, the order allowing martial law. This is NOT acceptable… and I’m sure there are other things we don’t even know about.
Part of “dumbing us down” and “numbing us out” by feeding us contaminated food, lying to us through mainstream media, and keeping us so uninformed, was so Obama and others could get away with running a tyrannical government and forcing legislation without our consent, because most of us didn’t even know what was going on, but even if we did, I’m not sure we could’ve done anything to stop it… many believe (as I do, and this has been thoroughly researched and documented, as well) that our impoverished diet is also responsible for increased crime and violence, poor dental health, increased aggressive behavior and depression, and it has fertility problems in those wanting to have children.
Then there’s the unacceptable way Planned Parenthood has specifically targeted black Americans (according to Margaret Sanger, the founder of PP, and someone HRC openly admires), which is why over 80% of their clinics were purposely built in poor, black neighborhoods… this is unconscionable and MUST be stopped… I believe that organization should be put out of business and I’ve been praying it would be.
To say nothing of the huge insult to God in forcing same sex marriages on the American people and forcing our children to tolerate homosexuality and transgenders, etc. These things are outright abominations to the God we say we serve, and He will NOT be mocked.
This CANNOT go on… and all the damage that’s already been done, NEEDS to be reversed, as much as possible… course, we can’t bring back the over 61 million babies that were aborted over the past 43 years, or the countless other lives who’ve been lost through human trafficking, pedophilia, satanic ritualistic abuse and “sacrifices” to pagan gods, mind controlled “sex slaves” and the murder of hundreds of whistle blowers who dared to stand up for righteousness in this country and were silenced because of it…
What has become of this nation?! No wonder the world is laughing at us.
Please HEAR the cry of countless US citizens… we are doing our best to make our voices heard, but our ability to really trust in a fair and righteous government has been shattered by years and years of being mistreated by the very people we’ve been taught to respect because we’ve been fed a lie that we all WANT to believe, that you government leaders actually do have our best interests at heart…
We all know how that’s been working for us… NOT AT ALL.
So if you really do have a heart for restoring America and giving us back our dignity and self respect, as we keep hearing you say, and we are all desperately trying to summon up the courage and believe you for, it will become obvious in the way things “play out” in the coming weeks and months and years as we walk through this tumultuous transition with you and your staff at the helm.
I KNOW it can’t be easy… you have accepted a HUGE undertaking…
We are standing with you in prayer, and will continue to cover you and everyone associated with you in prayer every day, especially during the transition… I do believe you are God’s choice and that He is helping you select ONLY those individuals to fill your staff positions who will stand with you in turning this nation back to God… anything less would be a tragedy in the making…
Thank you for your prayerful consideration of this letter.
We are standing with you for a better America, in Jesus’ mighty name.
Sincerely in Christ,
